Genital warts and personal hygiene? Please help!

I was recently diagnosed with HPV, and I've developed genital warts along with it. This has raised some questions in my mind regarding my personal hygiene. It's turning me into a bit of a germaphobe, and I hope someone can give me some peace of mind.

Can I live a normal life like I did before I found out I had HPV? That is, can I bathe and do laundry like I always have without spreading it to my housemates or anyone else? Is it alright to assume that I'm safe as long as I'm not rubbing my genitals on anyone and sharing unclean towels?

I made an appointment to talk to my doctor about this on Tuesday; I was just hoping to get some feedback in the meantime. Any responses are appreciated.
